The surreal cloud forest of Corca Valley is home to the towering wax palm, Colombia's national tree and the tallest variety of palm tree in the world, reaching heights of up to 190 feet. Led by knowledgeable local guides, besides the trees, you will find a huge variety of fauna and flora, in particular the amazing hummingbird. You will also have the unique opportunity to contribute to the continued preservation of this unique landscape by growing your very own palm tree.

Cocora Valley Insights - Salento

Founded in 1842, Salento was one of the first settlements in the Quindío state and still today it preserves its colonial bahareque architecture. Salento's centuries old buildings are awash in harmonious colour, especially along Calle Real, the main street lined end-to-end with restaurants, bars, handicrafts shops and souvenir shops.
